Trying to figure 'em out. Here's what Saucer-Like has to say:

Take my hand he said to me
follow now or you'll be damned
let's go to the other side
let's go to the other side

(Henceforth ?)

(?)

Brother James you (?)
Brother James your (?)

I don't need it anymore
comin' knockin' at my door
I don't need it anymore
comin' knockin' at my door

take my hand you might as well
we're going straight to hell
i don't wanna hang around

i'll call attention to the fact that i've never seen an official lyric sheet so as indicated on my site, those lyrics are my unofficial interpretation, but i think i'd trust my unofficial interpretation over any other interpretation on the interterp.. er, internet. got carried away.

yes, I was about to point out that they might not be 100% correct.
I'm pretty sure "comin' knockin' at my door" is there.

I'm so old I don't know what "noob" means. But if it implies I'm new to Sonic Youth, let me just say that my first SY purchase was in 1989 (Daydream Nation) and my first show was the Goo tour in '91. Seen them practically every summer since then. But I've never come across an "official" lyrics sheet, so I thought I'd ask. I call COOPERATE!

By the way, I'm preparing a lyrics sheet for 1991: The Year Punk Broke--I'm teaching the film in a class I'm giving this summer on "punk." So, I guess I'm trying to replicate the performance there, but also compare to any other versions floating around. Thanks, everyone!

You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Satan again.
